run on. now, you had quoted congressman roskum, the republican from illinois, at the outset of the program saying we have seen where expansive government leads. it leads to a nagging unemployment rate of about 10%. well, you know, i'd like david to try to tell me, see if we agree with the unemployment rate would be if you hadn't done the steps, if you, you know, the republicans opposed what obama did. >> i think the president's problem is that he promised people he would get them back to work. and they're not back to work. and so the question is, did we need, as you suggest, more medicine or did we use the wrong medicine? and you can do all the economic models you want but many americans think what happened here is we had a big stimulus, it was somehow a lot of pork barrel spending to get through congress, we bailed out wall street, we didn't bail out main street and they want to know, where's the beef? >> today in the press conference there was a kind of undercurrent of questions that essentially goes like this, didn't you try to do too much?
